I am looking for suggested guidelines/requirements in setting up a special
fund for needy scouts in the troop.
I know according to National that the Troop is not supposed to set up a
separate fund. However, the Chartering Org. can. So, I am NOT looking for the
"legalism" stuff - I already know what has to be done, & what shouldn't be.
What we want to do is set up a fund through our church for any needy scout in
the troop. For ex., funds for summer camp, or equipment like backpacks,etc.
So what I am looking for is what guidelines/requirements have other Troops
used in determining how a scout applies for such funds, what can the funds be
used for, is there a "service" project requirement made of the scout, etc etc
? Basically, we don't want to reinvent the wheel.
